1956 Gibson Les Paul Special Single Cut in TV Yellow. No breaks. No cracks. No repairs. Comes with the original "Cali Girl" hardcase, which is equally as clean as the guitar!
Almost 100% original, Grover Rotomatic tuning keys were installed at some point in it's life, otherwise she's bone stock! Comes with the original tuning keys and bushings. As well as a Leo Quan Badass II wrap-around tail piece.
This is one of the rarest TV Yellow Les Paul Specials, with it's early version of TV Yellow (which is also known as Limed Mahogany). Where the finish is more translucent than the, more common, opaque TV Yellow. And has a 1-piece body!
For celebrating it's 60th birthday this year, it's in amazingly clean condition! Minor buckle rash on the back of the body, some finish wear and body dents on the treble side waist and lower bout. As well as some finish chips between the bridge pickup and the wrap-around tail piece. The neck pickup tone control knob is cracked but still functions, but part of the edge (numbers 0-3) is cracked all the way through and is just hanging on. There's also some finish wear on the bass side of the neck, where the binding meets the neck, from the 4th fret to the 12th fret.
The stock pickups read; 7.71k bridge and 7.53k neck.
Has a tasteful amount of finish checking all around.The frets are played, but not chewed, nor is it in need of a refret. There's still plenty of life left.
Has a 1 11/16" nut width, standard 24 3/4" scale length, and weighs 7 pounds 6 ounces.
